End of seasonPosted: October 21, 2011
Summer officially ended some weeks ago, but there are aspects of summer that are just now beginning to fade. I think we might still have a few more warm days in store. Even so, we’re entering a whole new phase of autumn.
We will have more cloudy, rainy days ahead. The first snowflakes will fly by Halloween. And the few flowers that are still blooming will dry and go to seed.
Autumn and winter will begin to battle it out soon. There’s no rush to break out the cross-country skis or other snow-related equipment, gear, or clothing. We still have time to walk, hike, and maybe even fit in a few more bike rides. Speaking of which, M and I should be out pedaling around Lancaster County, Pennsylvania today. It depends on the weather. We might have done it yesterday. Either way, I hope to come back with some of the images of Lancaster County that I’ve been wanting to capture.
One of the interesting aspects about traveling back east this time of year (anytime of year, really) is watching the season reverse by a few weeks. It is usually warmer and sunnier once we pass through the mountains of Pennsylvania and head south to Lancaster County. If we miss the peak of the fall foliage here, we can go there to see it. I did hear before we left that all the rain they have been having out east has dampened the fall colors.
I’ll let you know if that’s true when I return home. In the meantime, thank you for taking the time to stop by and keep up with me via my scheduled posts. 🙂
